Does anyone here know if the bike will still run after I switch the petcock lever to off?

My bike does not die after switching the petcock to off ( i just found out)

yes it will, for a short time. Shutting off the petcock only turns off fuel flow to the carb bowls, which have fuel in them already.

It should be obvious that your petcock isn't working. Try removing the vacum line.

if you were just letting the bike Idle in the drive way with the petcock off it will run for about 15-20 minutes almost... but i wouldn't think 30.. check to make sure you turned it off and not to reserve
